More Than Enough & Not Too Much

Guys, this a letter that I wrote to my wife some time ago. It doesn’t read much like a typical love letter but it truly generated from there.  Far too often the ladies in our lives long to know what’s in our heart and just want to hear that they alone – are enough.

Read on and you will see what I mean….and don’t forget to find a quiet intimate moment and tell her – she always was and will always be – enough.

I read a book, Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul” by John and Stasi Eldredge,  just the other day about what some women go through internally.  I really connected with what it said and want to share with you my version of how I feel towards you.

What I read made me stop, not just for a moment but at length, and think.  I want you to know that if you have a nagging sense of failing to measure up, a feeling of not being good enough as a woman; that you are truly a gift in my life and more than enough.  You are amazing in so many ways, a true success story when it comes to being a wife, partner, mother, friend, provider, and businesswoman.  Who you are is an example of what every woman strives to be.  You are such a positive influence to those in your life and I know that far too often it goes without so much as a mention.

After all, if you were a better woman—whatever that means—life wouldn’t be so hard; right?  You wouldn’t have so many struggles; there would be less sorrow in your heart, less stress in your soul.  It would be easier to create meaningful relationships and sustain them without them draining you dry.  Days would seem more important, filled with romance and adventure and not with the duties and demands of wife, mom, daughter, sister, employer, mentor, and more, right?  Do you ever feel unseen, even by those who are closest to you? Do you feel unsoughtthat no one has the time, the passion or the courage to pursue the real you, to get past the messiness to find the woman deep inside. And do you feel uncertain—uncertain what it even means to be a woman; uncertain what it truly means to be feminine; uncertain if you are or ever will be all that you feel you are expected and demanded to be?

If ever you get a feeling that you are not quite measuring up I want you to know that you are not alone in that feeling.  We, the rest of the world, never seem to let up on you. You are more than enough and not too much at the same time.  You are beautiful, kind, gracious, disciplined, driven, successful, giving and all of that at just enough.  You are not too emotional, too needy, too sensitive, too strong, too opinionated, or too messy.  The result is a one of a kind of woman, a snowflake of uniqueness who should never feel ashamed of what you aren’t because of all of the amazing things that you are.  While you are not perfect you are the perfect combination of all the right elements.  The fear of never being enough should never so much as nip at your heals. You, as an individual, are worth understanding, and for that I will never stop passionately pursuing your heart, pursuing you as an individual and pursuing you as a daughter of our Heavenly Father.                                       

Just becoming aware of your deepest feelings, I yearn connect to your heart; to learn and share more.  I long for intimacy and for adventure; for you to be the Beauty of our great story.  The desires set deep in your heart may seem like a luxury, granted only to those women who get their acts together but they aren’t and they can be a reality for you.  I am committed to do and be my part to see that through; not from duty or self righteousness but because I love you.

 The message I have for you is: you are more than enough and you never have to: Try harder.

I love you
